Get Saddled Up in your All New Original Lightweight !

Check out our How It Works page for more details on the options available for the All New Original Lightweight! All Hit-Air models come with universal connection parts, allowing you to gear up regardless of your riding style. Follow the setup shown here by securing the Western bungee lanyard snugly around your horn, noting that the horn has a flat top. Riders should locate the best point to connect the saddle by ensuring it stays in place in case of inflation. To test this, riders can practice dismounting without CO2 in the vest to avoid using a canister unnecessarily.

    It really works.
    On 1/26/22 I was working on my jumping with my trainer. Surprisingly, my horse bucked after the second jump (first time he had ever bucked), and I flew off. I had my Hit air vest on and was fine. Determined to not end the lesson on that note, I got back on and decided to canter some poles without my vest. Because what were the chances that I would fall off twice? Well, as we cantered through poles, my horse bucked me several times and I fell off onto my back. Resulting in breaking my L2 vertebra. No riding for at least 6 months and I have to wear a back brace for three months. It was the exact same fall as before, but because I didn’t have the air vest on, I fractured my back. This accident was a clear example of how the Hit Air vest can prevent injuries. It was the same type of fall, same horse, same rider and same ground, but with the vest I was completely fine. Without the vest I suffered a 25% compression fracture of my L2. Eight weeks in a back brace with no lifting more than 10 pounds, followed by physical therapy. No riding for 6 months and after than I will be on lead line lessons for weeks. All because I was I didn’t go get my second canister and reset my vest!
